LODEF is music and video.

smoke and mirrors by Daniel Hicks

A concept image for a larger project code named ‘smoke and mirrors’. I used Cinema 4D and After Effects. For a look at some of my works in progress check out my Instagram thingy.

Demo for an electro pop dance track that will have a music video as well eventually.


More demos and stuff here.

Number 7 from the Nine Inch Nails ‘Ghosts’ albums, deconstructed and remixed by Lodef.

I have been experimenting with audio visualizers for my music. This is also a musical and audio branding experiment for Lodef.

‘They Live’ is a cult classic from one of my fave filmmakers John Carpenter. Like myself, he is also a musician and has made the soundtracks for most of his own movies. So as an ode to him I updated the soundtrack for this fan trailer with some eighties-esque synths fused with some more modern style movie music.

I’ve always loved the ‘Knight Rider’ theme music so I made a technofied remix and added some video from the intro to the iconic show. This was an editing experiment and included some video post-processing.

There is lots more stuff on the LODEF Youtube channel.
